'Tis the season to be wicked...

When a woman desperate for a job saves the life of an earl...

... both of their plans for the future are thwarted.

He's eccentric and society-shy...

There's no polite way to describe Ansley, Earl of Scarborough's obsession with schedules and inflexible routines. Unfortunately, he's also in need of a wife, which forces him squarely in the midst of the society he can scarcely function within. If only he dared to ignore the haut ton's censure and claim the lovely, wholly unsuitable Willow as his own.

She seeks a governess post...

Up from the country, Willow Harwood must quickly secure a governess position and save enough money to return to America. Only, her plans are foiled when she rushes to the rescue of a devastatingly handsome earl in the process of being robbed. Though he's far above her station, she can't fight the irrepressible attraction she feels toward him.

Neither is prepared for the upheaval to their lives when she reluctantly accepts his offer of employment...as his housekeeper. Nor can either predict the mayhem that follows when a lord who disdains society and a country miss with no experience plan a haut ton Christmastide gathering.

This charming Regency holiday historical by a USA Today bestselling author will make you smile, laugh, and sigh with contentment as you witness the sweet and tender love growing between Ansley and Willow.

If you enjoy reading entertaining Christmas, class difference, strong heroine, and lovable rogue stories with a dash of romantic humor and heartwarming emotion, then you'll adore Collette Cameron's enthralling WICKED EARLS' CLUB SERIES.

As Ansley Twistleton, Earl of Scarborough, is walking along thinking about his current state of boredom and how to cure it, he is set upon by a large and burly thug. He is quite able to defend himself and does. Then thug number two shows up to join his buddy. This seems an unfair fight to Miss Willow Harwood who was walking nearby, so she decides to help. She deters this villain by whacking him over the head with her umbrella. Once the fight is over, they introduce themselves and Ansley walks Willow to her boarding house. Ansley is impressed, curious, and drawn to this daring young woman. Willows feels much the same about him. Where will this story go from here? Ansley is honorable, intelligent, and a member of the Wicked Earls Club. He is described as eccentric (a little OCD here). He must have things organized and kept in his order, and schedules must be strictly adhered to. Deviation from this plan causes him mild panic and a tic next to his eye. Willow is intelligent, well educated, thoughtful, and caring. She wants to be a teacher or governess, but, horrors of horrors, she is American (she talks funny). When she is around Ansley, she has a calming effect on him. This is a quick read, a lively and engaging story with a wonderful hero and heroine, a little odd in their own way, but absolutely loveable. There are some nasty gossips, a love-struck butler, and a loving, very smart mama. I thoroughly enjoyed Collette Cameron’s interesting addition to the Wicked Earls Club series.

I loved, loved this story. It hit all the right buttons for me. A handsome lord with a few inconveniences and inflexible adherence to schedules and routines. A bright, effervescent, spinsterish American miss wanting to earn enough funds so she can return to America after her English grandfather dies. They meet when she helps thwart a robbery of the said lord. Once Willow Harwood enters Ansley Cecil Huxley Twistleton’s life, it will never be the same. Ms. Cameron excelled with this work in how she developed the story and the chemistry between Ansley and Willow. Her descriptive phrases about Ansley’s habits and demeanor and the gradual changes he underwent after he met Willow really drew me into his character. And Willow, what a delight and a perfect foil for Ansley. She brought him peace and made him happy. Don’t miss reading this one. It is sure to delight you as it did me.

A connection was made despite the differences in station. Willow's determination and adaptability made her a wonderful heroine. Her willingness to protect others without a thought to herself made me smile. I loved her spunk. Ansley was definitely interesting with his need for routine and precision, and I enjoyed how Willow upset that only for him to find there were more important things. The secondary characters were a joy as well, especially Ansley's mother. I recommend this story, and the Wicked Earls' Club series. I received an ARC for free, and this is my unsolicited review.

The most imperfect, but absolutely perfect hero, the Earl of Scarborough stole my heart and still has not let go! What's a reader to do? Hopefully see it released on audible and fall in love again! (hint). There are just so many wonderful things I want to tell you about this story, but unfortunately, it would be the entire book! Collette Cameron continues to creates stories that are awe-inspiring, bringing to life characters that have you laughing, sighing and tugging at the heart for their challenges in life and their triumphs. Ansley, the Earl of Scarborough was a man of routine, order and precision and when he stepped outside of his comfort zone, it did not always go well. But he was trying, visiting the Wicked Earls club and getting to know the gentleman. When he met Willow Harwood, his, as well as her life would never be the same! Willow helped save him from an attack by ruffians and he in turn saved her from ending up on the street! A magical tale that I will long remember and read again to be sure.. Thank you Collette for bringing such happiness to my life with your amazing gift! Lori Dykes

Ansley, the Earl of Scarborough, is quite stuck in his ways – in an OCD and socially awkward sort of way. He does not like anything out of the norm interfering with his routine. Imagine his annoyance a woman saves him from bad guys and a mugging on his way home from his club! Willow Harlow is in London hoping to gain a job as a governess, so she can pay her way back to Connecticut. Her plans change after she is involved in a scandal involving the Earl. To compensate her, he hires Willow as his housekeeper since his current one ready to retire. The Earl of Scarborough was a fun book to read and it was great to see Willow bring Ansley out of his shell. The banter between the two is wonderful, considering their social status difference. If you are looking for a quick holiday read that will leave you feeling warm and happy, Collette Cameron’s Earl of Scarborough is the book for you! This will be your 5-star holiday treat to yourself!!

The Earl of Scarborough is book 21 in The Wicked Earl’s Club series. This is Cameron’s second contribution to the group (her first being The Earl of Wainthorp) and she does a marvelous job. In fact, this is Cameron at her best. I adored this story and felt especially drawn to the hero - the Earl of Scarborough, Ansley Twistleton. I think I’m in love. He reminds me of that lovable detective Monk with all his eccentricities. Cameron takes a flawed and at times vulnerable character and handles him with a sensitive touch. His tic is adorable, and so is his “pet” rock. I love that he is so strong and capable of fighting off the bad guys and yet so vulnerable that he needs the touch of the rock in his pocket to calm him. Just a wonderful character. I especially loved how his household does everything they can to ensure that his life goes on without a hitch out of sheer love for the Earl. I liked the heroine Willow Harwood, but Ansley stole the show. “You’re like oxygen to me, Willow. I can scarcely breathe without you.’ Then he was kissing her, wrapping one sinewy arm around her back and cradling her head with the other as he laid her against his shoulder. This wasn’t the tender whisper across her lips she’d experienced in his study. This was a ravenous man. His kisses wicked and wanton.” Bravo Ms. Cameron! I think this goes on my shelf as one of my very favorite books - certainly one that I will read over and over again. I was given a copy of this book.

Willow has just arrived in London. While making her way to the boarding house she is planning on saying at, she encounters a nobleman being robbed. She jumps in and helps him out. He is grateful and walks her to her new lodgings. The next day at the employment agency, Willow is told that because she is American that no one will want to hire her as a governess. On her way out, she runs into the man that she aided the previous night. Ansley is in need of a new housekeeper. When he arrives at the employment agency, he is shocked to see Willow. He is even more shocked that he offers her the position as his housekeeper, even though she has no previous experience. Ansley is not good with people, but he finds that he can talk to Willow and he soon finds himself falling for her. Will Ansley make his new housekeeper an improper offer or will he go against the grain and ask for her hand in marriage? I loved Willow and Ansley's story!! I loved watching how Ansley was more the person that he wanted to be when he was with Willow. He became less rigid with his routine and more comfortable around others. This was a great addition to the Wicked Earls series!

Loved the story of Willow and Ansley! Willow was such a strong character in both passions and personality. Not one to let slight's slide. Ansley was protective of Willow from their first meeting. It was instant love that neither knew. Watching how Ansley just kept digging himself further into challenges to schedules that he needed to keep while keeping his hands off Willow was fun. Have to admit I loved Ansley's mother. Also, the description in the library matched the cover perfectly minus the laughing. Loved the book! Thank you for the advanced copy, it's an awesome read!

Another very entertaining story by Ms Cameron. Ansley has "peculiarities", that make it difficult for him to fit into society easily. Willow is struggling to find a job as a governess. I loved the circumstances of their first meeting, that allowed them to see their true selves right away - his wit, confidence and honour, her strength, courage and kindness. Highly recommend.
